According to Ghanaontheglobe.com reports an angry father on Monday, 26th April,2021 stormed Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast to withdraw his ward from the school on the basis that he does not understand why the school does not permit his child and other muslims there to fast.
A father called Ishmael Zakaria Alhassan, the father of Bushira Ishmael, drove from Accra to Wesley Girls to carry out his threat of withdrawing his child.
Talking to Ghanaontheglobe.com, the angry father didn’t understand why the authorities of the school would not allow his child to fast in the school.
“My daughter had admission to this school this year. In fact, for over a month, we had not heard from her. We became a bit apprehensive when some news portals reported that muslims at Wesley Girls were not allowed to pray. I had a friend who teaches in the school and he debunked the story,” he explained.

He continued, “two days ago, I had a call from my daughter and she complained that they were not allowing her to fast. I know my daughter; she’s been fasting right from the primary school through to the Junior High School and so I became worried.”
According to Zakaria Alhassan, the complain by her daughter made him decide to come to the school to withdraw her immediately.
Explaining to Ghanaontheglobe.com, the father indicated that the Headmistress of the school doesn’t allow students to fast because of stomach ulcer and other complications.
The Headmistress of Wesley Girls gave them alternative to either adhere to their rules or take his daughter home. The angry father wanted to take his daughter home but it seems the daughter still want to still school at Wesley Girls.
